Berghotel Pointenhof
Reviewed March 21, 2012

We stayed for nearly a week in the renovated "Gasthof Pointenhof" up the mountain in St-Johann-in-Tirol.

The renovation is still going on, and I think a modern lift is to be installed next summer.

It was a good stay. Getting there was a bit difficult as it is up a winding road over two skipistes. With the great amount of snow and ice this year I got stuck, but the owner was very kind to come to help with his tractor, and also to drive us down again at the end of the holiday.

We travelled as a family of four, and had a great suite of rooms, with a room for us the parents and a big room separate for the children. It was the living quarter of the owners before the renovation. A 'small" minor point was perhaps the bathroom which was a bit small, but that is a detail. There was a big balcon.

We were in "half pension", which was very good.

In the morning there was a breakfast, buffet, hot and cold, with all the necessary things.
In the morning you had to choose between two courses, meat or fish, for the evening.

The dinner started with a very good salad bar, then a starter, soup or something else, and head dish, and then a dessert.

It was of very good quality and freshly made. Unbelievable for the small surcharge for the dinner...Especially the "Tyrolean evening" on Thursday was memorable...

Pointenof has a good cook. There is a special menu for the children, and we were very happy that it was good food, not the normal "children menu" dishes as fish sticks or hamburgers. The dishes were simpler than for adults, but very good and qualitative.

A plus point for experienced skiers is that the hotel is halfway the mountain, straight next to the skiing piste, and at the beginning of a ski lift.

All in al recommendable, more special, it seems to me, than a hotel in the village, and not more expensive. Good food, friendly people, good atmosphere.

Room Tip: Try the family suite on the front, former private quarters, on the second floor

Reviewed February 9, 2009

Located right on the slopes, this warm guesthouse, hosted by the charming Mettler family, was a pleasant surprise. Comfortable European style rooms, outstanding meals and a double chair lift right on site leaves little to wish for. If you are looking for the tough "black diamond" runs, heavy shopping or rowdy night life, this is not the place for you. Nicely groomed intermediate runs, easy access to the town's main gondola, and ski-in/ski-out convenience make the Pointenhof a unique destination. We opted for the half-pension rate and were not disappointed. Every evening meal was another culinary surprise. Herr Mettler and his staff and family go out of their way to make sure your winter holiday is a great one. The facility's location on the mountain discourages trips into town, but with an all-wheel drive vehicle, one can elect to travel from this location. Otherwise, enjoy numerous beautiful ski runs, a slopeside "schnee bar" for quenching the inevitable thirst, and cap each evening off with a delicious Austrian dinner. Our family is definitely returning!
